Six days after the murder of a journalist in Adamawa state, Maxwell Nashon, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Audu Madaki, said the command has arrested two suspects in connection to the murder.

Madaki revealed this when he received the National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalsits (NUJ), Chris Isiguzo in his office in Yola.

“Two suspects have been arrested and are helping police in the investigation,” Madaki said.

“Detectives are working assiduously to ensure that the culprits are not only arrested but duly prosecuted. The police will soon parade those involved in the heinous act,” he said.

Madaki said journalists and security operatives “are twins brothers and partners in progress, hence the need to have synergy in the interest of peace and security.”

Isiguzo commended the police for the arrest and urged them to ensure justice.

He said his team was touring the country with a view to meeting journalists to design solutions to the challenges facing their profession.

“We have confidence in the Nigeria Police Force as it remains the best in Africa with outstanding performance accepted globally.

“We are using this forum to call for a cordial relationship with our members in the state because of the central objective of the two professions is building a peaceful and society where rule of law is maintained,” he said.

Late Nashon was a staff of Federal Radio Cooperation of Nigeria (FRCN), Fombina FM, Yola, until he was abducted, last week, and murdered.
